You can own Korean-style dewy skin with these simple tips from make-up experts
Overnight Mask is the KeyFirst of all, you have to understand that dewy skin reflects well-hydrated body and balance. Exercise regularly. Get enough sleep. Drink a lot of water and eat a lot of juicy fruits and vegetables. Don’t forget to add moisture to the skin by applying moisturiser every morning and night. If you know it’s going to be a late night, use a facial mask as your night cream and leave it on. The intensive ingredients in your facial mask can quickly revive your skin so that you wake up with beautiful skin the next morning. With moisturised skin, dewy make-up is easy. Skip Foundation Powder If you want dewy skin, use foundation instead of foundation powder — it is too matte to give your skin a dewy look. Overly matte skin not only makes the skin looks dull and lifeless, but also is incredibly out of fashion. Dewy VS Shiny There is a fine line between dewy and shiny. If you think you could just coat your skin with pearly shimmer, you are wrong — that only makes your skin overly shiny and unflatteringly swollen when in bright light or in photos. The trick is to use “illuminator” which has micro pearly pigments. Lightly apply it on your forehead, cheekbones, nose bridge and chin to make your skin glow beautifully. Try BB Cushion Formula BB cushion is another secret to dewy skin. Gel-cream texture gives it flexibility, and since the BB cream is under a sponge, you can easily control the amount in each use. The application sponge is dense and rubbery, so it doesn’t soak up too much cream like regular sponges. This kind of sponge also helps polish the skin for a gorgeous glow. A tip for applying BB cushion is to press it lightly on the skin — not drag or rub. Be Improvised If you don’t own BB cushion, mix foundation and gel-cream moisturiser to give the foundation more flexibility. It also gives your skin moisture and the colour looks more natural. Do not apply loose powder on top because the skin will look too matte. If you have oily skin, you might use the sponge of your powder to dab lightly on the skin. This could help reduce the excess shine without taking away the glow. Always Choose the Right Shade Women with tanned skin or honey skin can also sport this look. Do not use foundation in a lighter colour — instead of making the skin brighter, it makes your skin grey. Steer clear from pink-based foundation because it clashes with Asian yellow undertone. Foundation with yellow undertone is best for Thai women’s skin. Try to Avoid Matte Texture In addition to avoiding foundation powder, also opt for cream-to-powder blusher and eyeshadow instead of powder or matte ones. For the lips, use lip tint, lip gloss, or lip cream to enhance your dewy skin.
